White fillings are common within modern dental work, also known as composite fillings they are commonly preferred over the traditional metal looking filling due to their tooth coloured and therefore more natural appearance. White fillings in Banbury are a mixture of tooth coloured resin and glass, meaning they are able to withstand for many years. White fillings are used as a popular alternative due to amalgam fillings being aesthetically poor, as well as containing mercury.
What are fillings and why might I need one?
Fillings are essentially a dental implant that fills a cavity within the tooth that has been damaged through decay and can be extremely painful if not treated correctly. These holes within the teeth can lead to later dental hygiene problems and infections if not treated. You may require a filling if you are experiencing pain within your teeth that is diagnosed as a cavity by your dentist. Although the most common use of fillings is to fill a cavity, fillings can also be used to mend fractures and cracks within the teeth. Fillings ensure a more serious alternative of removal of the tooth itself is not necessary. Fillings may be required if there is significant tooth decay. This decay is caused by the acids in foods breaking down the tooth enamel. The plaque is caused by saliva, food and bacteria, the acid within the plaque is the cause of tooth enamel decay.
